Atlantic Hearing Care FAQ

Can you self refer to an audiologist?

Self-referral is a direct path to Audiology for hearing evaluation and, if necessary, National Health Service hearing aids. You do not need to see any other health care professional before seeing an audiologist if you use self referral. In general, you can refer yourself to an audiologist, but if you want to acquire insurance through third-party payers, you must get a recommendation from a doctor.

Do you need a doctor's referral for a hearing test?

Currently, all diagnostic audiological treatments paid by Medicare require a physician referral, with the purpose of testing as the major factor affecting payment. Medicare covers medically acceptable and required therapies for a patient’s diagnosis and treatment. For each treatment charged, the clinician must indicate in the medical record the specific sign, symptom, or complaint that requires the service.

Is a hearing aid specialist the same as an audiologist?

A hearing aid specialist can examine your hearing and fit you with a hearing aid. Audiologists can assess and diagnose a larger range of hearing and balance problems. Audiologists are the medical specialists in charge of diagnosing the root cause of hearing loss since they are concerned with the pathophysiology of hearing loss. An HIS, on the other hand, is exclusively concerned in doing hearing tests and fitting hearing aids.

Is a hearing aid dispenser the same as an audiologist?

Hearing aid dispensers (HADs) are fully licensed experts who test hearing and provide aftercare for hearing aids. Hearing aid dispensers must be qualified and apply for a license in order to use hearing technology. Audiologists can assess and diagnose a larger range of hearing and balance problems. An audiologist may be more suited for more medically related services such as balance issues, earwax impactions, and noise-induced hearing loss. Both professionals may do hearing aid maintenance, cleaning, and repairs, as well as fitting and adjusting.

 

If you think that you or a family member may be exhibiting any of the symptoms above, give us a visit at Atlantic Hearing Care Massachusetts and have your hearing checked by a professional.
